  • This amazing piece of folk history was originally published in 1896 amidst a colonial revival frenzy that swept America's eastern seaboard in the 1890s. Determined to preserve American colonial cooking, Margaret Hooker collected quaint and curious recipes and remedies that appear to have come from old and reliable sources ranging from the mid 1700s to the mid 1800s. Her 226 original illustrations of cooking utensils give us a glimpse of colonial America as seen through the eyes of a young artist and teacher of 1896. This fun book includes recipes, beauty secrets, etiquette, candle making, and household hints, written in 18th centry 'long S'-style print.
